After finishing college Kris and his family moved to New York where Kris became computer science major. Kris is an IT engineer with BTIG.
“I have been active my whole life ever since I was a kid but never really a fan of boxing. I watched fights from time to time especially polish fighters. When my younger brother went back to Poland that left me with a lot of time. I stumbled on UFC fight on TV and started to get passionate about fighting. Then about 4 years ago neighbor and a good friend asked me if I wanted to try CKO (cardio kick boxing) as a sport. He wanted to fit into his tux for his brother’s wedding. I said sure and that’s how it started. We met the owner Matt Acquista who started to train me to box I have been doing it for the past 3 years. I got couple of friends from work into boxing and now we have a small group of training partners. It really changed our lifestyles. We started to live healthier, eat cleaner, motive each other. For this I am thankful to Matt and I and very happy to have him in my corner in every sense of the word
” Favorite active fighter - Lomachenko. “I’m obsessed with freedom of movement he possesses.”
Heroes: Henry Rollins, Joe Rogan, Cameron Hanes, David Goggins – “just few that come to mind. I love how they just do shit - great motivators in life.
